Kino Klassika works hand in hand with iconic jewellery brand Fabergé on a series of screenings to showcase masterpieces of early Russian cinema. The silent film galas are hosted in the elegant environs of London’s most beautiful Edwardian cinema, the Electric, with introductions from leading experts and accompaniment by world class film accompanists.
It is a way for the Anglo-Russian business and artistic communities to become familiar with the Fabergé brand and build bridges of shared connection. It also an elegant way to spotlight Fabergé’s ongoing commitment to the history of Russian creativity and iconic Russian film art.
At times of heightened political chariness, it can be enlightening to explore shared cultural heritage. Sergei Eisenstein is an iconic filmmaker. Fabergé is an iconic brand. We are delighted to sponsor Kino Klassika to encourage familiarity with the best of Russian culture.Sean Gilbertson
